Hello webphotouk, looking at the setup you have presented in the image, here are some issues you may want to address:

1. The lighting is adequate, with miner visible shadows. That's a good thing. You may want to study various lighting scenarios.

2. The colour obviously is intended to be B&W, but the parasol is another colour as well as the female models hair.
What's the centre of interest, the couple or the parasol or hair?
It's confusing and not normally done in a classy shoot. Keep to B&W if that's your intention.
No special effects, they tend to come off a little cheezey. There's a place at times for these types of effects, but not
in this instance.

3. The backdrop fabric is wrinkled and shows various anchor points, that should not be visible in the final shot.

4. There's visible particles of debris visible as well

5. The pose is a bit too contrived and predicable.

Sorry to be so blunt.
A suggestion would be to look at many famous portrait photographers to glean some inspiration and some photographic techniques.
Just my take on it .

If you can't get decent backdrops, then use locations outdoors and available light to shoot your portraits. They may look more interesting.
And practice, practice, practice is essential, so keep'em coming...Gary
